**  This file declares the functions of the global variables package.
**
**  The global variables  package  is the   part of the  kernel that  manages
**  global variables, i.e., the global namespace.  A global variable binds an
**  identifier to a value.
**
**  A global variable can be automatic.   That means that the global variable
**  binds the  identifier to a function and  an argument.   When the value of
**  the global variable is needed, the  function is called with the argument.
**  This function call  should, as a side-effect, execute  an assignment of a
**  value to the global variable, otherwise an error is signalled.
**
**  A global variable can have a number of internal copies, i.e., C variables
**  that always reference the same value as the global variable.  In fact the
**  internal copies are  only used for  functions, i.e.,  the internal copies
**  only reference the same value as the global variable if it is a function.
**  Otherwise the internal copies reference functions that signal an error.
